Looking for a scooter that’s stylish, futuristic and efficient? Check out Honda Philippines, Inc.’s Click 125i, a scooter that’s powerful yet friendly to the environment.
Made for the young generation, the scooter was recently unveiled to motoring journalists who got to test drive the scooter at the Honda Safety Driving Center.
“Our customers said they want a good-looking scooter, so we will give them a scooter with exceptional design,” said Yasushi Okamoto, president and general manager, Honda Philippines, during the press conference.
A feature motorists will definitely love is the Idling Stop System (ISS) which eliminates wasteful fuel consumption by automatically switching the engine off after 3 seconds in traffic lights and other brief stops; and when you have to move all you have to do is just to twist the throttle to start up and go in less than a second. Conventional engines continuously consume fuel once the engine is started.
Another futuristic feature is the Enhance Smart Power (eSP) that combines high power and high fuel efficiency with a quiet start and smooth eco-friendly engine.
eSP technology is integrated with the Unique Honda ACG starter that is able to start the engine jolt free and with a more refined sound. It is this technology that powers the ISS feature.
The Honda ACG starter is exclusively developed for comfortable frequent operation of the idling Stop System. The engine is started via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there are no reduction gears and gear meshing noises. Just smooth, quiet starts.
Safe and secure
The New Honda Click 125i eSP is also packed with safety and security features, like the standard automatic Side Stand Switch where the engine does not start up when in the down position, and Brake Lock easily operated to prevent the motor jump when started or remains in the idle state when stopped on a hill.
The Click 125i also comes with bigger tubeless tires for better traction.
Another feature is the Magnetic Key Shutter which effectively prevents theft and push-button seat opener. The New Honda Click 125ieSP also has the largest luggage capacity in its class at 18 liters which is capable of storing a Full-face helmet.
The benefit of Honda Smart Technology is further optimized with the advent of technology Combi-Brake System (CBS) which balances braking the rear wheels and front optimally.
PGM-FI, a technology pioneered by Honda since the introduction of Honda CX500Turbo in 1982, the 1st in the world Fuel Injected Motorcycle is also used in this model.
The PGM-FI built-in Liquid cooled engine boasts of 8.40 kW (11.4PS) @8500 RPM maximum power and 11.16 N.m @6500 RPM maximum torque and delivers class leading fuel efficiency of 64.3 km/liter at 50kph or 58.9KM/liter under ECE R40 testing method.
The Click 125i also features an LCD meter panel and class leading Dual Keen Eyes LED Headlight projecting a commanding “Night-Face-Image.” The LED headlight provides a better advantage for the rider through 80% higher light intensity, 80% more efficient power consumption, and longer lifetime.
Honda is offering the Click 125i SRP PhP 87,900.00. It is available in three colors, Pearl Horizon White, Asteroid Black Metallic and Candy Rosy Red with Honda Genuine Accessories in selected Honda 3S shops.
